Fluorescence image of bodies and axons of the mesencephalic trigeminal nucleus in a 4 day old chick embryo. The trigeminal nucleus is made up of scattered neurons along the midline of the optic tectum. This micrograph shows the optic tectum from the back. The axons are labelled on one side only. Mesencephalic trigeminal neurons are unusual in that they are primary sensory neurons (probably derived from neural crest) that develop within the central nervous system.
